At Sigma Tau, the forms of protest have ceased, but certainly not the requests for attention. Today the trade unions issued a press release in which they ask the company to respect the signed agreement, making it concrete in a calendar of meetings. “In a dramatic situation like the one created by the decisions taken by the Company – declare the trade unions. – the Union believes that it has provided tools to deal with it better with the proposed agreement submitted for consultation. We have assumed our responsibilities; however, we demand the same attitude from the other side of the table as well”. And to do that, you need to know who to talk to. “It is therefore necessary – the unions continue – that the Company immediately indicates a reliable interlocutor, with a full mandate, relational skills to deal with both general and organizational issues and daily emergencies.

It was an experience of great political teaching, a test in the field, a lesson on the workers' struggle and on union struggles, which has the flavor of other times, but which is instead very topical. A ferocious attack on work and workers is being perpetrated, there is even a desire to abolish Art. 18. For some years now, companies that are not in crisis have been bankrupting their employees and relocating them to tax havens”. The PRC_Federazione della Sinistra widens the view on the entire Pometo area. “Pomezia, one of the most important industrial centers in the Lazio Region, has been fully involved in this serious crisis: Playtex, Casa Mercato, Herla, Emmelunga Aiazzone, just to mention a few disputes. Our party has always stood by the workers, this is how we conceive politics, with concrete actions, the defense of work and workers passes through solidarity and support for their struggles, this is how we practice politics ".
